GET LAMP: Austin Seraphin
Austin! One of my favorites! Blind since birth, Austin was interviewed at his home and provided me with all sorts of amazing stories and outlook about the magic of Interactive Fiction to those born without sight. He was very accommodating to my bumbling around his house and we discussed a lengthy amount of subjects both from a blind perspective and as someone who saw the true hallucinatory aspects of IF world-building and experiencing. Since this interview, Austin has gotten no small amount of prominence in writing about the effect of accessibility in computing for the blind, notably with the iPhone's features. His "You can't see a thing? I don't care!" line in GET LAMP is consistently the biggest comedic burst of the whole final film - I've had zero shows where that didn't get a reaction. A great interview.
